“Best place in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012 via mobile

I never leave disappointed or hungry.
The bathrooms are very clean and the music is a nice touch.
Overall it's the best place to eat in town.

“Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

This place has always surpassed my expectations. I always recommend this restaurant to those who like shushi. The sushi boat is wonderful along with the curried chicken. Always a winner for me!

“Could be good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

Went here for supper - the atmosphere is ok - service was good we did however find the food although good was rather salty and I mean EVERYTHING was salty - we did find that different dishes had different salinity levels though - one chicken dish we ordered ( forget the name of it ) must have been made from poultry raised at the edge of the dead sea. NOT the place to go if you are sensitive or have salt issues in your diet or health
